The Key Difference Between Jesus and a Socialist
Letters, May 9, 2022, WSJ
Prof. Alexander William Salter’s “Jesus a Socialist? That’s a Myth” (Houses of Worship, April 22) is certainly correct. But the reason
is even simpler than Mr. Salter’s explanation. Nowhere in the
Christian scriptures does Jesus teach, urge or even remotely suggest
that the power of the state should be enlisted to enforce his teachings
about the poor or any other subject. If anything, quite the contrary.
While certain clerics may prefer socialism, that is only the
sociopolitical view of individuals.
